Funny place names
Following a recent letter about funny street and place names we asked for readers to get in contact if you had some, too. Below are just a few of the many we received.
Following on from reader Hazel’s picture of the place name Bedlam, we arrived here but what would be the point of going down this lane?

My family and I go through a village in Wiltshire called Tiddlywink. We all have a laugh as it only has eight cottages. I wonder if they play the board game?
Diane Carke, Bristol
I stayed with my grandchildren at a B&B in a small village called No Place just outside Beamish. In the same area I also stayed at a motel in Dear Me and my late great aunt lived in Quacking Houses. All these are in County Durham.

Pity Me in County Durham comes to mind. Vera Jack, Tyne and Wear
I find place names very interesting and the history of how they got their names. In my Powys area we have Clatter, Stepaside and Knockin!
